Famo – Adventure Motorcycling

February 21st, 2011

Hey there, I’m Damien. In October 2006 I set out on a Kawasaki KLR 650 with the intention of riding it around the world…

Famo is a blog about my journeys through Southeast and Central Asia and on to Spain. I finished the trip at the end of 2007 with a 500km walk across Spain from St Jean Pied de Port to Santiago de Compestella. The journey was an amazing experience and I’d like to share my photos and stuff with the world, also hopefully promoting sensible travel to some of the supposedly more “dangerous” places on earth. Everywhere is awesome!

By day I live in Sydney and work as a web developer and photographer for triple j, a national youth radio station.

Famo the Blog is an ongoing project. Life has been busy since returning to Australia, but I’m trying as hard as possible to drip-feed info into this collection of stories and guides. Check out some of the pages and posts on the right. Oh yeah, if you see missing images, I’m on it.

I’m throwing ideas around for more trips in the future, the following are in the back of my mind:

- Broome to Brisbane entirely off-road
- Trans-amazon
- A shoestring, down-to-earth guided tour of Iran (for friends and family to attend too)
- Northern areas of Pakistan and the border areas of Afghanistan
- Yosemite National Park down to Texas for SXSW.

If anyone is interested in doing some motorcycling, traveling, or just adventuring in general around the suburbs of Sydney, please leave me a comment.
